Pepe's has the best breakfast burritos in town. They are huge and you can specify what they put in it. There are multiple locations, but the one on Placentia Ave. is a bit dumpy, not some place I'd really want to eat at, but they are great to drive through and take it home or to work.

Thank you to the lady taking my order, she convinced me to order 1 taco and not 2. The amount of, in this case, chicken, was enough to fill 2 whole tacos. I was full and the amount was perfect!

Pepe's has 4 or maybe 5 locations. The same family that has owned it since it was a single store still owns it today. Unlike the Mexican fast food chains whos names we all know, Pepe's is NOT fast food. You DO have to wait. Their food is far more authentic Mexican than the major sit down restaurant chains claiming... More

Made fresh to order and hot! The biggest burritos around and very inexpensive. Ty their guacamole too (they come smothered on the taquitos!). Chips and pick de gallo are also very tasty :). Definitely a fast food joint, but one worth stopping at!

I used to work near here. Love this location! Relleno burrito wet with green sauce & tostada guacamole are my go to choices.

Probably one of the most underrated Mexican places in Placentia / Fullerton. The Cali Burrito is not on the menu, but it is a secret item (it has Carne Asada, Fries, Sour Cream, Cheese, and Guacamole). Freakin' awesome! The Breakfast Burrito as a platter with beans and rice is hands down one of the best I have ever had! Give... More

Bring sufficient cash since credit cards are not accepted in this hole in the wall restaurant. Parking was not difficult on this Monday during lunch. We wanted to eat in the restaurant instead of going through the drive thru. However, inside seating was full. The interior was small and had no atmosphere. Bring a jacket in case you need to...

I ordered a combo burrito with asada, beans and cheese. It was tasty and delicious. It is a very large size however, so come hungry to this place. The salsas are a bit on the hot side for my taste, but overall the burrito was great.

This place is a small drive thru with a couple of tables inside if you prefer to eat inside. For what you get, Pepe's is pretty inexpensive. All the Mexican food is great. I'm a sucker for a bean and cheese burrito with red hot sauce. Just one. Pro tip: a small order of fries is more than enough for... More
